Is this a Reinauer Transportation tug? (80s music video)

I graduated from Mass Maritime in 2001. Got a degree in marine trans and a 3rd mate license. Sailed as a third mate briefly on tankers after I graduated; however, I’m no longer sailing. Anyway, I’m a huge fan of 80s music. I was on YouTube the other day and decided to watch one of Tina Turner’s old classics - What’s Love Got To Do With It.

Can someone please take a look at the beginning of the video?

(During opening shot of the video, there is a tugboat transiting the East River. Looks like it was heading north just before the Manhattan Bridge? You can see cars moving on a highway across the river. Is that FDR Drive?)

Was that a Reinauer Transportation tug?

I’m just curious. Can’t really see the name of the tugboat.

I sailed on ship and then ruined myself (in a good way) on tugs. Funny you should mention this. I drive my wife and family nuts if I am watching a movie, video, commercial, etc. and a tug/barge has a cameo. . . .
